We've all been there... and wished we weren't. But the topic for the morning show today was, tell us the worst place you've been stuck for an extended period of time?

JStew: Man, I feel like sometimes I've had way more than my fair share of being stuck places. I'm also wildly impatient. So if I sit too long anywhere, even at home, I start to get antsy after a while. Which is ironic, because I'm a pretty big introvert. It's not like I wanna really go anywhere, I just get stir crazy. But... the DMV always comes to mind. Pretty much every kitchen job I ever had, each day felt like an eternity. Teeth filled, you name it. I hate it all, hahahaha. But the worst of all.... Sitting in traffic, going nowhere. That's it's own private hell for just about anybody.

Cori: When I was in middle school, I went to my friend Gail's birthday party. On the wall of her den was an antique pair of handcuffs. The story was that Gail's grandpa had been a master locksmith and had made them for Harry Houdini. Naturally, being curious 12-year-olds, someone had the bright idea to take them down off the wall and try them on me. I can tell you in hindsight, that was NOT a bright idea. We went right to her folks and told them what we had done, apologetically, and to their credit, her folks were very gracious and kind about me being cuffed to a family heirloom. First, we tried dawn dish soap. Then butter. Then lotion. Nothing seemed to work. It was late in the evening on a Saturday. The only lock-smith in town who would come to help showed up drunk. But I honestly think that played in his favor. Somehow, because he lacked a full understanding of just how tricky these cuffs were supposed to be to get off of someone, he managed to hit some sort of release and I was free! It only took 6 hours.

So I was up there, in the high winds and stuff, and paint was going everywhere. It ended up splattering all over my car's brand new paint job.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
